The fifth season of Bigg Boss Tamil is off to a good start and the show is slowly gaining good momentum among the Tamil audience. Eighteen contestants were sent inside the house on October 3 and today's (October 17) episode will mark their two weeks of stay inside the house. The 18 contestants included VJ Priyanka, Pavani Reddy, VJ Abishek Raaja, Ciby Chandran, Varun, Akshara Reddy, Imman Annachi, Chinnaponnu, Thamarai Selvi, Abhinay Vaddi, Suruthi, Iykki Berry, Mathumitha, Niroop Nandakumar, Namitha Marimuthu, Nadia Chang, Raju Jeyamohan, and Isaivani.

Among the 18, Namitha Marimuthu had walked out of the show last week due to personal reasons and it was an unexpected development. The regular eviction process kickstarted at the beginning of this week and in a very interesting manner, almost everyone got nominated for the same. Among the 17 people, 15 of them were nominated - only two of them were not nominated - Thamarai Selvi and Pavani Reddy. Having said that, the shoot of the weekend episodes got over yesterday (October 16) at EVP Film City and so the eviction results are already out on social media.

According to reliable reports and information, Nadia Chang has been evicted from the show and she is the first contestant to be evicted from this season. Nadia Chang is a popular model and social media influencer from Malaysia. Despite staying inside two weeks inside the house, Nadia couldn't manage to leave a mark among the audience and it looks like she has gotten the least support from the people, as a result of which, she has been evicted. Nadia Chang's eviction will be officially known in tonight's episode and we can expect an emotionally charged episode tonight.

Nadia's eviction will leave 16 contestants inside the house and the coming week's nominated contestants for eviction will be revealed tomorrow (October 18). We will also have to wait for a few more days to see if there will be any wildcard entrants this time.
